German prosecutors are investigating allegations of kidnapping against makers of a reality TV show where contestants are expected to lose weight after allegedly refusing to allow one of the contestants to leave a health farm to visit her sick boyfriend until filming was complete.
Prosecutors in Munich have confirmed they are investigating the allegations against the makers of the dieting show "The Biggest Loser". They said that a 48-year-old woman on the series which currently is airing on private TV station Sat.1 filed a complaint at the end of last year over the incident which she said occurred filming in Spain.
She said: "I heard that he was suddenly in hospital and I wanted to go to him immediately. But I was held and forced to stay. They said that if I didn't stay seems that had already been filmed would need to be filmed again."
Sat.1 spokeswoman Diana Schardt said she believed that the prosecutors would eventually throw out all the allegations and said they had already filed charges themselves against the candidate for slander and malicious rumour spreading.
